Default Re: What transmission lubricant do I use?

I think we can put this subject to rest.............I don't genuflect for any of these Auto Manufacturers.........They have done a lot of dumb stuff, however.........I do have enough faith in the Engineers that designed the tranny(for well over 10 years). Between the design of the system and alloys used in it and I trust that if they determined that ATF is the best Fluid........I believe I have read a few horror stories about gear oil in the tranny and I don't remember any horror stories about ATF...............

I would agree. I stick to the owner's manual on stuff like this.
